TPDP Episode #20: GraphQL For API Development

I am pleased to announce that the latest episode of The Polyglot Developer Podcast is available for download! If you’ve been keeping up with the blog recently, I’ve published quite a bit of content around GraphQL as I personally believe it to be the future for API development. Being able to access related and unrelated data on demand through a single endpoint is huge for the people consuming your data and huge for the developers creating the data because of specific model definitions.

In this episode titled, GraphQL for API Development, I’m joined by Lee Byron, one of the co-creators of GraphQL at when he worked at Facebook. Lee gives us all the details on how GraphQL came to be, why it is huge for development, and how to use it successfully in your next application.

This episode, along with every other, can be heard best through popular podcasting networks and applications such as, but not limited to, iTunes and Pocket Casts. However, if you’d prefer to listen to it directly from this blog, you can find a direct link to the episode below.

If you have any questions regarding GraphQL or the things discussed on this episode, reach out to Lee Byron on Twitter at @leeb or myself directly at @nraboy. Both of us would be happy to talk about GraphQL development regardless of the language that you’re trying to use.

There are opportunities for sponsorship in future episodes of the podcast. If you’d like to learn more about those opportunities, check out the sponsorship section of the blog.
